Five-time majors professional golfer Phil Mickelson has reportedly been cleared in an investigation.

Mickelson’s name was implicated in two investigations related to inside trading. Mickelson was cleared of any wrongdoing in questionable stock trading practices in shares of Clorox due to lacking evidence connecting him to the scandal.

However, Mickelson is still under investigation for another possible inside trading scheme.

According to New York Times sources, Mickelson is under investigation over inside trades involving Dean Foods stock. Mickelson allegedly obtained nearly $1 million from this inside trading operation.

Mickelson made a public statement Thursday following the opening round of the U.S. Open maintaining his innocence.

Mickelson has previously been investigated by the FBI and the SEC for possible inside trading activity allegedly involving investor Carl Icahn and Las Vegas gambler Billy Walters.

Mickelson has denied any involvement in those probes. There have been no charges been filed.
